Golf courses are man-made wonders, often bringing out the best of a natural landscape. The pace and nature of a good round means many golfers spend as much time admiring the landscape around them as they do with their eye on the ball, which is why Teed Up firmly believes that golfing holidays can be the best way to experience all that a new location offers.
With its heart hewn from the rugged hills and windswept coasts of Scotland, little wonder that some of the best golf courses in the world are also close to some of the best sights and top tourist destinations. Golf packages can truly offer the best of both worlds; time spent doing what you love and an opportunity to explore new places.
Seeing the sights while enjoying your golf doesn’t always mean a long-haul flight. A golf package can be a great incentive to look at your own country anew. For example, a couple of nights in Melbourne offers you the opportunity to take in the centre of the Australian arts scene while still enjoying two games of golf at great courses.
A fantastic night’s sleep in luxurious four-star accommodation will set you up for a full day of activities, whether it’s a tour of the Royal Botanic Gardens after your round, or a sunrise hot air balloon flight before you pick up your clubs.
Our 16-night package tour of Scotland and Ireland is a great example of how a golfing holiday can broaden your sightseeing opportunities. As well as courses and hotels in major cities like Dublin, our Scotland and Ireland package also gives you the opportunity to see more undiscovered and remote parts of each country.
A five-night stay in St Andrews gives you the chance to play at the oldest and most-respected links courses in the world, as well as ample time to explore nearby Edinburgh and the Fife coast. Historic landmarks like Falkland Palace, Stirling Castle and Bannockburn are all within easy reach of St Andrews. Turnberry, on Scotland’s west coast, offers stunning views of Ailsa Craig and is a short drive from Scotland’s biggest and brightest city, Glasgow.
A golf tour package to this year’s Ryder cup offers you the chance to stay in Inverness, Aberdeen and Edinburgh. As well as the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch the Ryder cup in Scotland, you will also have the opportunity to play on legendary courses and visit sights throughout the highlands in the company of a PGA professional and like-minded golfers.
